We’ve got lots of fantastic events and workshops still to come in our Spring season.

We’re pleased to announce our 5 week short course will be all about the short story. Join acclaimed short story writer Emma Timpany and try your hand at short form writing on Saturday mornings from 8th May-5th June. During five informative and inspiring sessions, we’ll look at the essential elements all short stories share and explore creative writing techniques. Emma will also offer feedback on your writing. Book here.
